EMBERARRESTA ™ HANDY HINTS
- Ensure you use ample Adhesive when installing Valves & or Adaptors to Ribbed or Patterned Downpipes / Downspouts.
- When using as an In-line Valve make sure you have enough elevation between the Gutter and any Storage Tank(s).
- Use Adaptors (Available from all Hardware Stores) if the Gutter Outlet is larger than the Valve or of a different shape. (Larger than 90mm round) or Square, Rectangle, Oval.
- The Valves can be fitted to PVC, Galv, Aluminium and other material type Gutter Outlets and Downpipes as well. Always use a good quality Adhesive Sealant and apply lots of it to provide a good Seal when fixing directly to Gutter Outlets (Pops).
- Use a clear Adhesive for the best looking finish.* Selection of some Adhesives;- Selly’s – All Clear- Sikaflex® – Fix AU– Fuller – Silicone Sealant- Viking – Silicone Sealant- Soudal T Rex- Silicone Sealant’
- If you don’t have a height issue (Outlet to Water Storage) you could in some individual circumstances use a 75mm Valve(s) a (cut your own) Spacer and a 90mm Adaptor to fit to a 90mm Gutter Outlet(s).
- Use a Stand-off Bracket / Wall-plate / Pipe-Strap or Saddle to Stabilise the Downpipe near to the Valve as possible.
- Although the Valve is UV stabilized, if possible position the Valves Green Sliding Seal away from the harshest afternoon sunlight to help with longevity. (Painting the Valve is also a good option)
- Use a small lock in the provided lock holes (In the green sliding seal) to help prevent accidental closure and practical jokers.
- Valve: Using screws for additional support when fixing to the Gutter Outlet – You can use any Self-Tapping screw or Tek screws preferably with “O” ring.
- Always place a “dob” of Sealant over and around any screw heads.
- When attaching an Optional Heat Shield, once positioned, the Clamps need only be tightened firmly. (No need to over tighten).
- The Heat Shield(s) can be attached by rotating the Clips so the Shield can be fixed (tightened) from the front. If however there is enough room between the Fascia & Valve, the Clips can remain in place and be tightened as is.

The upper balcony of my home overlooks a national park, the views are lovely but the risk of fire is real! In the past i have had to climb up onto my roof more than 20 ft off the ground to block my gutters, with the new EmberArresta valve i can safely stay on the balcony and simply close the valve from there using the broom handle to easily reach and close it., much quicker and safer than climbing on the roof. Because of the close proximity to the house of the trees and scrub, the heat shield when attached gives great piece of mind that the valve will stand up to the test.
